The ever-adventurous Semantica label is a trusty place to find more unusual extrapolations of the techno discipline, and this time around Arcanoid has some perfectly dishevelled, beat-heavy electronica to offer. Recalling the warmth and punch of early Ai Records releases, there's a strong electro heart beating away at the core of these melancholic, considered tracks, but it lies under a thick fog of classic synthesiser action. Vangelis pads abound on tracks such as "House Of Frankenstein", which is marvellously underpinned by an arpeggio fit for a Romero movie. The sci-fi dread that hangs over the EP makes it an engrossing listen from start to finish.
